Allison Spivey ’22, Editor in Chief

      Hello, my name is Allison Spivey and I have been a contributing member to the Rambler since my first month on campus. I am a senior now and am honored to be able to serve as Editor in Chief for our 2021-2022 year. I am a double major in Education and Social Change and Psychology and I am excited to pursue a career in education in a non-traditional setting such as a nonprofit, museum, or other historic location in order to inspire the next generations of lifelong learners. I am shocked at how quickly my time at Transy has gone by, but I am determined to finish the year off strong and make the Rambler a “dorm-hold” name again.

Seth McKinney ’25, Copy Editor

      Howdy, my name is Seth McKinney and I am super excited to be a part of the Rambler this year! I plan on majoring in psychology and my end goal is to be a middle school psychologist. I don’t have that much experience in journalism but I believe that you should always try new things so I hope I can really make a difference in this year’s Rambler. Lastly, I am a Scooby Doo fanatic so if you would ever like to discuss anything Scooby, I’m your guy. I can’t wait for you to see what we do this year!

Grace Morrison ’22, Arts Editor

      My name is Grace Morrison and I’m your Arts and Culture Editor! I’m a senior now, but I’ve been with this esteemed publication since my first year at Transy. One might say I’m seasoned, maybe even an expert. I joined the paper because I thought all the writing I’d be doing for my English major wasn’t enough. And I was right.

Chuck Logsdon ’25, News Editor

      My name is Chuck Logsdon and this is my first year at Transy and on the Rambler. I did newspaper for four years in high school and am a big fan of journalism. In my free time I like hiking and camping, I also really like to cook.

Matthew Hazelwood ’23

      Matthew Hazelwood (Psychology Major, class of 2023): “Writing at its best” said Hemingway, “is a lonely life…For he does his work alone and if he is a good enough writer he must face eternity, or the lack of it, each day.” In actuality writing is a communal process, and I joined the Rambler so I could be surrounded by a group of intelligent and talented writers. Writing is perhaps one of the most important activity in my life. I started writing stories in elementary schools, but as I grew up, I gained a greater appreciation for the art of a well-turned phrase. I have not yet given up the hope of making money from writing, but until then I am honored to help the Rambler put out good content on subjects that college students care about. When I’m not writing, working, or studying, you might find me reading, wandering the city with my headphones on, or hanging out with friends.
